Proud Safe2Torch Registered Member
M&J Group pledges support to promote a safe system of work when using gas torches. Safe2Torch provides guidance for the safe installation of torch-on reinforced bitumen membranes and use of gas torches in the workplace.
The purpose of this guidance is to promote Safe2Torch specification writing at the initial survey and design stage and a safe system of work when using propane gas torches for the application of roofing membranes and the drying of roof surfaces.
M&J Group should be particular proud of this achievement, as they were so significantly involved in setting this up with NFRC.
As a Safe2Torch Registered Member we commit to:
- Highlighting and reporting specifications which do not conform to Safe2Torch
- Identifying and reducing the risk of roof fires caused by gas torches
- Ensuring all employees are trained in the use of gas torches and their associated risks
- Ensuring all supervisors or charge hands have completed the Safe2Torch checklist prior to hot works commencing
